Dig deeper into The Nature Conservancy's work by learning about the people behind the conservation.
"Global environmental challenges have given us new appreciation that the future of people and the future of conservation are strongly connected." Dig Deeper
"Bird migration is probably the most unifying natural phenomena in the world - bringing together the natural history and conservation issues of states, countries and continents." Dig Deeper
"The Ironton Unit [of the Wayne National Forest] is a part of the larger Appalachian forest, one of the world's best examples of intact temperate forest. We in Ohio tend to think of it as "just woods," but it really is very significant on the global scale." Dig Deeper
"The main responsibility of the field staff I oversee is to restore and maintain native species diversity and an overall healthy ecosystem." Dig Deeper
"We hope to help restore some of the natural hydrology to the Ohio River system, which will create a stronger ecological base for the region's aquatic and terrestrial life." Dig Deeper
“To restore more natural water flows, we’re working with the agricultural industry to improve drainage ditches, utilize wetlands to clean drainage water and implement the use of cover crops.” Dig Deeper
"The wetlands and stream I work in are incredibly beautiful, wild and mysterious. Each day I work in the field is a gift, and I do everything in my power to give back to the humbling force of our natural world."
"Nothing feels more like home than a morning in southern Ohio's Appalachian Forests, when its steep hills and beautiful stream valleys are filled with ephemeral mist. I was raised here, and I want my grandchild to know and love these forests and streams as much as I do."
